Civil Rights Lawyer Destroys Mayor Lightfoot - 'She Racist!'
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is trying to join the "woke" progressive Liberals and decided that to encourage diversity she would only be allowing people of color to interview her. For some reason, the mayor who leads a city that is at least 50% white thinks it's ok to discriminate against white people. Fox's Bill Hemmer, with "America's Newsroom," had on Geraldo Rivera and Civil Right Attorney Leo Terrell to discuss her racist behavior.
Hemmer asked Rivera first.
“I think this is very weird. A weird and racist policy, declaring she will only grant these one-on-one interviews to black or brown reporters. I am a proud person of color but some of my best friends are white including my wife.
“In solidarity with my white brethren, I will not ask this mayor for any interviews. She has a whole lot more on her plate than the race of the reporter asking her the tough question,” Rivera replied.
Hemmer then turned to Leo Terrell.
"Leo, can you imagine if a white mayor anywhere in America said anything close to this? I mean how would you respond?" Host Hemmer asked.
"If a White mayor said the same thing you would have CNN and MSNBC and Black Lives Matter protesting and burning down this country. In other words, I can go interview this lady—which I would never do, but Bill Hemmer cannot. Bill Hemmer, with more experience, but because of Bill Hemmer’s skin color—let me be very clear…It's not weird, She’s a racist! She is a racist. Let’s be clear. Black woman, mayor, a racist because she won’t let Bill Hemmer do an interview, but she’ll let Leo Terrell. Never would I do this. As a civil rights attorney, I find this repugnant," Terrell answered disgusted by Lightfoot.

What is Lightfoot thinking here? Terrell is right, this is very much racist behavior and it wouldn't be tolerated if the shoe was on the other foot. You can't do something racist and then label it diversity thinking that makes it ok. You couple this with the police recently telling Lightfoot they don't support her, she should just do her constituents a favor and resign.
